Looking for a place to eat we decided to wait until this restaurant opened for food (just before 8:30pm). We weren't sure whether it was tapas style or not. We assumed it was but they cut our order down saying we had ordered too much....We had. Portions very generous. Would really recommend the fabada or the beef cheeks or the young goat. All very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back.More

Just don't! Everything is deep fried and refried. Even basics like roast chicken and chips is disgusting! Our kids refused to eat it. Pulpo so chewy you have to spit it out.

We visited in August 2015 during the local "Semana Grande", (the local holiday), so the place was crammed. Nevertheless the service was quite prompt and courteous. The place is rustic, plain and frugal, but the menu is indeed a joy to behold, with loads of...dishes you will only be able to sample in Asturias. We ordered a "Tabla de Quesos Asturianos" (Asturian cheese platter) which could easily have fed 10 people. Absolutely perfect and definitely worth trying if you visit Asturias. Also, Bonito a la Plancha, which is some sort of Cantabrian white tuna you can only find in the north of Spain and only two or three months a year. It was spectacular, and -again- massive, as it came with a mound of homemade chips and a generous salad. Particularly original was the patatas with "3 sauces" (brava, ali oli, as well as the local "cabrales"). It tasted ace and was served, uniquely with three pots for the sauces (see photos attached). Good value for money. Would like to return.More

We went there and the place was busy. It appeared many of the dinners were locals (which is a good sign) rather then tourists. We had been quite unlucky with places to eat in Northern Spain, however this restaurant is highly recommended. It was a...delightful surprised. Both the price of the food, selection of the menu and taste were all brilliant. I highly recommend it. I have uploaded photos. Please leave tick yes, if helpful review. Restaurant located on pedestrianised street, just off the main road.More
